Hello my name is Wendy Martin, I believe ceremonies are wonderful opportunities for you and your family to express what matters most to you in a way that feels creative, fun, memorable and unique…just like you.
My job is to help you express your love, at times that really matter and, in ways that you will remember forever. The style and content of the ceremony will, of course, vary, but what’s most important is that you get what you want. So I would use your words, your ideas and reflect your values and beliefs (spiritual or not) throughout the ceremony.
I support your own creativity through providing extensive resources and ideas for rituals, readings, and music. Your ceremony can be both an inspiring community experience and an intimate and deeply personal moment. You can trust that I will conduct your ceremony so that both these aspects will be honoured.
As your celebrant, I will walk alongside you and your family at every stage of the process. You always have full editorial control over what is said and done so that you can relax, and be there fully with those you love, on the day.
About Me – I have been passionate about marking the important milestones in life with ‘Ceremony’ for as long as can remember. But sadly, many of the ceremonies that I have attended over the years have struck me as formulaic and frankly boring. We are all unique and these milestones deserve to be celebrated in a unique style; reflecting ‘who we are’.
The fact that my work as a Celebrant, allows me (and you) to create unique ceremonies is what makes it such a joy and a privilege to serve in this way. With my previous professional background in retail sales management, libraries and most recently as advisor/mentor for University students with disabilities, I bring the skills of working intimately with individuals along with my ability to engage and inspire larger groups of people.
With regards to my personal characteristics I think the following words best describe ‘who I am’; Mature, Approachable, Flexible, Organised, Punctual, Patient, Hard Working and Fun!
Fees – The fact I bring extensive experience from many other related fields as well as professional Celebrancy Training with the United Kingdom Society of Celebrants means I offer you excellent value for money. Fees for all Ceremonies are available on request. Please email me and I would be delighted to discuss your needs in depth.
Professionalism – Being professional is a fundamental value in all my work. Whatever field I’ve worked in, I’ve always aimed to be the best and to give my best for the sake of my clients and also the profession as a whole. I am a lifelong learner by nature and I love to read about and network with those in similar professions so that I can constantly improve my standards and develop my skills and approach so that you and your family get the ceremony you deserve.
